Strange and peculiar flavors are not new in Chinese people and for the past years Lay’s have been producing vast numbers of unusual flavors for their chips including lemon tea (subtle), cucumber (cloying) and hot-and-sour fish soup (fishy). According to AdAge, “in potato-chip form, the [pepsi-chicken] flavor is vaguely similar to barbecue with a sugary aftertaste. If there’s any hint of Pepsi, it’s fleeting and lacks fizz.”

“We thought it would be really cool to have a cola combined with chicken. … It’s a very popular dish in China,” the executive said “Also it would be very cool to involve one of our most-iconic soft drinks.”

The flavor of the chips is somewhat similar to barbecue, but with a sweeter aftertaste, Doland said.
